BEMIDJI — BSU has been named among the nation’s’ most affordable for out-of-state tuition. ranked BSU at 28 on its out-of-state tuition A-List.

That list ranks schools based on what CollegeAtlas considered to be a “realistic look at what a typical student will pay for their education” at a particular institution, based on the organization’s examination of various publicly available data.

The rankings of more than 1,300 colleges and universities recognize institutions that do the most to provide students with an opportunity to earn an affordable, high-quality education, according to a press release. The A-List uses U.S. News Best College Rankings to assess the academic standing of each institution. It then factors in tuition costs and acceptance rates to create a list of universities that balance three factors important to students: affordability, accessibility and academic quality.
